I have not found home schooling easy, but we have coped and done alright. Coming back to parenting as I have has advantages and disadvantages.

The biggest advantage is experience. I thought I'd been there and done it all with my three and suddenly I was in the unknown having to home school my grandchildren for the first time.

It has also not helped that they have been in and out of school a lot. The two long stretches were better, but the last month or so and last Autumn when they were constantly being sent home have been the hardest.

Establishing a routine is key and a spanking early on in each spell of home schooling has often been necessary. Once I've got them into the routine then we've generally been ok. It's important to mix in some fun to the day as well. Normally the school day would include having some fun with their friends so I didn't make it all work.

I hope that it's over for me now, but my advice is to find the right mix of routine, discipline and fun for the children.
